AFRIKUN

 

 

Kumar is originally from Havana, Cuba.

AFRIKUN consists of the Cuban trumpet player and composer Daniel “el congo” Allen Oberto,

Their “acoustic” objective roots within the idea of combining the tradicional Afrocuban folk music with modern urban-electronic elements,
while at the same time preserving the origins and the power of each component.
The Trio El congo, KinRe and Kumar have intiated this adventure years ago and are now ready to present it to the public.
